Northside Yacht Club
Kick your hangover to next Tuesday with a meal so meaty you’ll question whether or not last night even happened. Northside Yacht Club has a cure for what ails you: The signature bloody is made with a peppery base (secret recipe!) with a heap of ground peppercorns and celery seeds. A skewer juts from the glass, hoisting a smoked chicken wing, a sausage slider, and a slice of bacon. Go overboard and get the breakfast sandwich, with an inch-thick, sweet-spicy sausage patty, covered with gooey American cheese, a sunny-side-up egg, and a bundle of arugula to cut the richness. What hangover? Sun 11–3, 4231 Spring Grove Ave., Northside, (513) 541-0528, northsideyachtclub.com
A cheap, no-wait boozy brunch joint can be hard to find in Over-the-Rhine on a warm Sunday morning. MOTR Pub on Main Street makes it easy. Plus, there’s no pressure to dress in your Sunday best. Roll out of bed and into one of MOTR’s cozy booths, seat-yourself style. The relaxed, dimly lit pub can cure hangovers ($2 bottomless coffee!) or get them started, with mimosas and bloodies available after 11. The breakfast tacos—loaded with chorizo, scrambled eggs, cheddar, diced tomato, bean and potato ranchero, avocado slices, and chipotle-chili sour cream—please brunchers young and old. The same goes for the egg- and potato-based Truckers Breakfast Casserole. Order both at the bar and a friendly waiter will bring them to your table. Sat & Sun 10–2, 1345 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, (513) 381-6687, motrpub.com
Nation Kitchen & Bar
If you’re looking to cure today’s hangover by starting tomorrow’s, Nation is your place. The bottomless mimosa and bloody mary (here, they’re called bloody Carries, after the infamous hatchet-wielding anti-alcohol crusader) party starts at 10 a.m. The music is loud. The drinks are plenty. The food is comforting enough to keep you drinking till you get all $28 worth—including one brunch item—by the time the bill comes at 2 p.m. It only makes sense to try the Hangover Burger (Nation’s known for its burgers), a beef patty stacked high with goetta, ham, and cheddar, then topped with a fried egg and layered on an English muffin. The Brunch Wrap Supreme and tots—loaded with cheese, sausage gravy, and fried egg—are also not to be missed. Just be sure to bring some Tylenol (and maybe some Tums). Sat & Sun 10–2, 1200 Broadway, Over-the-Rhine, (513) 381-3794, nationkitchenandbar.com
Fifty West Brewing Co.
Brunch takes the scenic route just a hop and a skip from the river’s edge, where Fifty West’s farmhouse-style taproom will recharge your batteries with all-American eats, signature craft brew pints, and a hearty side of classic rock jams in a family-friendly atmosphere. The Kitchen Sink is a must-try: buttery biscuits and crispy home fries are smothered in a beer-infused sausage gravy—creamy, savory, and a touch malty-sweet—topped with two over-easy eggs, a sprinkling of cheddar, and a peppering of house-pickled jalapeños. For simpler tastes, the Brewmaster’s Breakfast—two eggs, bacon or sausage, house fries, and a pancake—is right on the money. Sun 10–2, 7668 Wooster Pike, Plainville, (513) 834-8789, fiftywestbrew.com
